The United States men’s national team may be a sleeping giant. After having struggled to exert itself on the international scene, the “land of opportunity” is currently churning out players who are not only capable of but also playing for Europe’s biggest players.
During the days of Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey, American players playing for elite clubs were a dime a dozen.
Christian Pulisic has been the most high-profile American to have played for the Blues and many will be mistaken to think that he is the only American to have played at Stamford Bridge.
However there have been two others and in all probability, more will come in the future.
Here are the two other Americans apart from Pulisic who have called Stamford Bridge home.
After impressing in Major League Soccer for the New York Red Bulls, the United States defender earned a move to Stamford Bridge in January 2016.
Chelsea had to make do without the services of Gary Cahill and John Terry for a Premier League game against Aston Villa in April 2016 which resulted in Miazga being handed his English top-flight debut. The West London club went on to win that match 4-0.
After looking solid on debut, Miazga was selected for the Blues following league clash against Swansea City but ended up being substituted at half-time.
Now on loan with Anderlecht in Belgium, Miazga has since made no Premier League appearances for Chelsea. His contract with the club ends next summer and he will likely be released.
A youth product of the Chelsea development system, Scott spent ten years with the club though he went on to make just one first-team appearance-making his debut in a 4-0 FA Cup triumph over Hull City in February 2018.
After joining Newcastle, Scott has failed to make the Magpies first-team and been used in their reserve games.
The 23-year-old has had an interesting youth international career. He represented England at U16 level, Republic of Ireland at U17 level and the United States at U18 and U20 level.
